The best fajita quesadilla in town! Love the steak ones. My husband loves the chimichangas. If you like Mexican, definitely check this one out!

Stopped in this past Saturday. Promptly seated and greeted. The chips were very good and crisp. They brought two sauces..one very tomatoe and thin that was very mild.
